Wow! It is perfect for us.
|Outdoor table with Casala chairs|
It is the first brand new furniture purchase we have made since 2004 (we bought two king-size single beds for the children). We usually buy vintage/second-hand furniture, because often it is better made and of course cheaper.
We had been looking for something simple and durable for our covered deck - the stainless steel frame look with the thick kwila top was a favourite. The table also needed to be a good length and width for the space - the new table is 2.2 metres long X 1 metre wide.
This setting was made locally in Brisbane which is another plus. Apparently most furniture like this is made in China. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but it is good to support local business, especially when the price difference with an imported product is negligible.
The bench seats are fantastic for the kids and when we have a large crowd. Two Casala chairs are for the ends while the other Casala chairs are spare - they give us more flexibility.
Today, we gave the setting a workout for a Father's Day barbecue. It's rock solid and gets the thumbs up.
We are now using our large deck to its full potential. And those three sad deck chairs can be retired.
